It's hard to find a good Peanut Butter Cookie recipe! I can't stand a hard crunchy PB cookie...they need to be soft and chewy (and stay that way)! Well, if you have the same inclination as me & my family towards PB cookies...this is the recipe for YOU!! These stayed so soft & chewy (well, at least for the 24 hours they were around!:)) and were absolutely wonderful!
Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies
Recipe from Everyday Home Cook
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Beat together the butter & peanut butter until well combined. Add sugars and beat until fluffy. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla and mix until smooth. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix just until blended.
Get a small bowl filled with sugar. Using a cookie scoop, (or you can use your hand and roll out balls, but the cookie scoop is just so much easier!) scoop out balls of dough into the bowl of sugar and roll them around until the entire cookie is covered. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Do not over bake!! Let the cookies cool on baking sheet for about 3 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
